Getting Help For Your West Virginia Daughter at Journey Home

As parents we don€™t want to see our beloved daughters suffer because they€™re unfit and can€™t keep up with the requirements of our modern society. At Journey Home, one of the most qualified healthcare centers in transitional living programs, we help to develop and accomplish critical achievements for young women from West Virginia who are on a recovery path. Picture7

Our transitional living program from West Virginia focuses on learning and managing five core principles that we believe are the foundations for a happier and more successful life. Our intervention is carefully planned with the participation of a professional team of psychologists, but also a proactive consultation with parents, and of course the active role of the patient in order to make her more responsible about her life.

Journey Home is located in Layton, just outside Salt Lake City, Utah. Of course we accept young women from all U.S.A. including West Virginia, and believe that a time away from home can be beneficial to struggling youth. According to experts, living in an everyday contact environment with peers, greatly improve socialization.

We differ from others transitional living programs because we focus on a wide variety of skills to achieve, that can be summarized in these five core principles: healthy living, education, life skills, personal responsibility and social integration. Every goal is carefully chosen to fit the individual needs in that particular area.

Journey Home is a healthcare center that aims to recover these young women beyond the simple €œcure€ and give them back to society as young and skillful women, with a real fighting chance for success, and not just as normal approved individuals.

Journey Home Creates Lasting Success For West Virginia Young Women

Journey Home is one of the most professional transitional living programs from West Virginia, we think that developing well-rounded skills is the best solution to achieve a long-lasting basis upon building success in our life. With more than a decade of experience in the field, our team established these five core principles as the most important areas to develop for becoming a successful and capable adult.

These principles are:

  • Healthy Living: It€™s important to keep ourselves healthy, not only in our body, but also in mind and relationships. The objectives of this principle are to develop and take care of the body, learn to manage emotions and feelings and learn how to have good and satisfying relationships. Picture4
  • Education: In order to be a successful adult in a modern society having a job is important, and education can lead to more career opportunities. We teach how to develop hobbies and interests, and some career, high school or college skills.
  • Life Skills: Managing day-to-day problems is also very important for practical reasons and also to build self-esteem. We teach our girls financial (budgeting, balancing check book, saving), daily living (chores cleaning, hygiene, etc), shopping, cooking, organizational, time management and job searching skills.
  • Personal Responsibility: One of the most relevant principle is taking responsibility, gaining a sense of agency and commitment to ourselves and our desires, in order to do that our young women are trained to task completion, planning, time management and keeping commitments.
  • Social Integration: Interacting with others is of course fundamental to be in any society, therefore we teach our girls how to have positive recreational activities, do community service, dating and healthy socialization.

We differ from other transitional living programs in the fact that our program from West Virginia is intended to involve parents and the resident in planning goals and treatment, this way we build up more sense of agency in our girls.
